yes, I was a bit sloppy there.
thanks for fixing that

Well no that’s not exactly true.

Static references — whether mandatory or optional — are always bound
before activate. If optional then it’s possible for the reference to be
bound to nothing (in this case the bind method will never be called).

An optional-static reference *cannot* be injected after activate. That’s
the definition of static.

Dynamic references can be bound, unbound or re-bound at any time before,
during or after activate. For example a mandatory-dynamic reference can
be re-bound without deactivating a component if the service it is bound
to goes away and there is a replacement service already available.

Hi all,

I am trying to create a component that is instantiated by ConfigAdmin
and uses multiple references to operate. Basically the component should
instantiate through a factory configuration and use that configuration
to set up its own @Reference s. You can see the code here:

All the mentioned @Reference ed components are instantiated by
configuration as well, so at a given time the @Reference might not be
available but my own component should still work. yet should the
Reference available then it should be injected, basic 0-1 strategy.

Problem I am facing with the current form of the code is that, the
@Reference injection is happening before the @Activate method is called.
This leads to NPE in the @Reference method due to null configuration. Is
it possible to make this code work such that config is provided to the
component before the dependency injection?

I have tried annotating the class fields and set them "volatile". I even
make them a list and use the class fields in the activate method this
time the class fields were null due to 0-1 strategy. so I end up with
annotating the methods.

I might have designed this all wrong, so any help simple or fundamental
is appreciated.
